ICYRaid MB662U3-2S and ICYCube MB561U3S-4S Review - posted by

ICY DOCK ICYRaid MB662U3-2S and ICYCube MB561U3S-4S Review

I was impressed with the build quality of these two drive enclosures. They are reasonably durable and should have no issue safely containing drives. Their solid anodized aluminum shells are not bad to look at, either. The ICYRaid has simple hardware RAID features easily selected by a rear panel switch, making configuration a no brainer. The ICYCube only operates as a JBOD unit, meaning those desiring RAID are going to have to rely on software-RAID features of their OS (as well as the corresponding performance hit when using a software RAID through a single external interface link).


ICYRaid MB662U3-2S Product Page:
A nice, simple two bay RAID enclosure that is quiet and easy to configure.
ICYCube MB561U3S-4S Product Page:
Good build quality, but limited on features for such an expensive device.
